TEARS

I cried today....Tears of mourning...
Mourning the loss of my singleness, lack of responsibility and cherished spontaneity,
The tears stopped.
SIGH....
BREATHE....
I cried today....Bigger tears of joy...
Of my future, of children, of love, of happiness, and the start of my own little family.

(handing you some tissues sweetie) SHED THOSE TEARS! THEY'RE WONDERFUL & LIFE IS ABOUT TO GET SOOOOOO AMAZING FOR BOTH YOU AND LITTLE TATE! =) Congratulations! It's the experience of a LIFETIME!

Congratulations! I know exactly what you mean. The whole time we're going through this I think this is the last time I'll be able to hop in the car and go here or whatever without having to worry about a baby. At the same time I'm thinking this is the last time I'll have to do this without my girl.

You deserve a good cry...mailing out the dossier docs stirs up all kinds of emotions!

I'm so glad they are on the way and can't wait to hear that you are DTC!

I understand completely! At times I wonder how life will change when I have a little one around all the time. Big changes, scary changes, WELCOME changes!

I find myself looking in the rearview mirror for her and I'm not even DTC yet! Uh oh...it's going to be a loooong year!

You and I are on similar timelines as I hope to have my dossier ready for my agency later this week. Waiting for 1 last piece of paper! Ugh!!!

What does DTC mean?

Lisa and Tate said...

DTC is Dossier to China... This is the all important stuff I have been working my last 6 months on... It is the final step and then the Chinese Gov will give me a LID (log in date)...at this time I will be waiting for my referral which *I* plan on taking 9 months!!!!! NOT LONGER....HEE HEE.
